    Default Lightspark 0.5.6 Brings New Flash Features

    Phoronix: Lightspark 0.5.6 Brings New Flash Features

    In light of Adobe killing Flash for Linux, there's a new release of the open-source Lightspark Flash Player. Lightspark 0.5.6 is the new release with a number of noteworthy improvements...

    Post GNASH also and not only Linux...

    I think GNASH is around for a long time, also.

    Seems like Flash developers should star avoid "Latest and greatest" requirements for their Flash products
    and treat Flash as legacy technology - that still needs to be supported for some time.

    Also I hope developers will not have their Flash compatible project Linux-only, since it is easy to forget portability and other platforms like BSDs and Solaris/Illumos.
    And yes, it is important to to be tied only to Intel/Amd x86-64 architecture.

    in front of my box :p


    Now what does Firefox 10 mean? There is FF 11 out for some time now. Is that already supported? Because if not, umm, I know Mozilla was going crazy with the versions and numbers, but then, if there is a security issue I quickly emerge / install a newer browser version.
    Hopefully Gnash and Lightspark will come along quickly since Adobe seems to drop that flash support completely. And as long as there is inevitable flash content on the web we need something to deal with it.

    They are going to support Flash Player 11.2 for five years so not really.
